[audio]Twenty Five [BFW099] - i AM esper
The seventh release on BFW from i AM esper is perhaps the most melodic and accessible. This is much more melancholic and ambient in places. More delicate than some of the heavy drones we have heard in the past. A pretty damned wonderful EP!

Total running time: 30:26 The second release on BFW from i AM esper is an EP of heavy guitar drones.

[audio]Thirteen [BFW206] - The Ambient Visitor
The new longform ambient album from The Ambient Visitor, a side project of BFW founder Bing Satellites. A continuous, 57 minute piece split into three parts. The music is generative: each note is played in a long loop, the length of each loop if different for each note, so although the music may seem to vary only slightly, it never quite repeats itself. I decided, perhaps because this is the thirteenth album, to start off in a darker mood...

[audio]Unfelt Massive - Closer Contact
The new abstract ambient album from Closer Contact. Magnus Larsson returns with his sixth release on BFW (including his collaborations with Meteer). This is yet another ambient tour de force - an album of mysterious electronic soundscapes. In his own words - I've tried to create a straight down ambient album with more or less no rhythm involved. Some of the songs are kind of divided into separate parts within and the last song ends with some glitchy clicking going on...

[audio]Twilight Sessions volume 12 - Bing Satellites
The new album of live ambient music performed by Bing Satellites during December 2013. The album is also available now on gatefold CD from bingsatellites.bigcartel.com The music is played into a long, slowly decaying loop. These loops are quite long (often around 90 seconds or more) and with very little rhythm to speak of, it is difficult to know precisely where I am in the loop, so I can add notes and sounds where I see fit, but can never know exactly what I am adding these notes to...

[audio]Landscape and Drift - Bing Satellites
Prolific ambient musician Bing Satellites returns with an album of slow, drifting ambient music. In his own words - Record everything! That is the rule I try to live by. The music on this album was recorded in one week in March 2012, a week when I was rather unwell and thought I had done very little other than take my cold medicine and watch TV in bed. I played a few soothing tunes on the piano (well, my facsimile of a piano) from time to time, but it came as quite a surprise to find that all of...

[audio]The continuing adventures of Peter Jelp - Bing Satellites
All music written, performed and produced by Bing Satellites. Something a wee bit different from Bing Satellites. An album of chilled, glitchy ambient music heavily inspired by All The Lost Souls, the collaboration between myself, Getzel and piper_ben. These two are as enthusiastic as I am about a wide range of music and exploring mew musical ideas. Although this is a solo album, this collaboration has meant I have explored new avenues that I may otherwise have never have stumbled upon...

The first release on BFW recordings from litmus0001 is a beautiful, lush soundscape of looping guitars and synths. Rooted in the beginnings of ambient, it draws comparison to Fripp and Eno's collaborations. But this is the work of one man, Jonathan Ewald. The music is recorded in one live take and completely improvised. Improvised and recorded in a single take on April 24th, 2010 at Worthless Research Laboratories in Madison, WI...
